On this day, he was tagged for three walks and six hits, including two damaging homers -- the first a two-run shot from Luke Montz in the second inning. Stephen Vogt collected a three-run homer in the third to continue a torrid spring.
Alberto Callaspo contributed with a first-inning RBI double.
A's starter Tommy Milone, now in line for a rotation spot following Friday's news of injuries to righties Jarrod Parker and A.J. Griffin, pitched out of a handful of jams in five scoreless innings of work, lowering his spring ERA to 3.86.
The lefty surrendered three hits and walked two with two strikeouts.
Up next: Sonny Gray gets the nod for a Sunday start against the host Reds at Goodyear Ballpark beginning at 1:05 p.m. PT. Gray, who's likely now in line for his first career Opening Day start with the injured Jarrod Parker shelved, is coming off his best outing of the spring -- a one-hit, four-inning performance against the Padres. He walked none and struck out two in that outing.
